Why? Engage Cleveland Next Generation of Women!

As Cleveland becomes a hub of young professionals, there are more and more organizations popping up to get YP’s out and about, involved and volunteering and networking.

Engage! Cleveland has established itself as a great resource for young professionals in Cleveland, connecting them with not only volunteer and civic groups, but career advancement and development programs, too.


Next Generation of Women, presented by The Sherwin-Williams Company, is one of these development programs put on by Engage! Cleveland. This forum is crafted to women in their 20’s and 30’s who are navigating career and personal life with real, helpful advice from notable women across a variety of professions.
